Financial Transparency

Welcome to the Town of Yarmouth’s Budget Site

This site is a resource to access and view information related to the Town’s budget. Here you will find annual budget reports, as well as our Open Budget application that offers a user-friendly, dynamic view of the Town’s revenues and expenditures, and employee earnings.

Annual Budget Reports

The Town’s budget reports are released annually in May after Town Meeting. These documents contain the Board of Selectmen’s goals for the fiscal year, a budget schedule and presentation, and a detailed view of each Departments’ mission and individual budget.

Open Budget

The Town’s Open Budget application provides users with a dynamic, visual representation of Town finances to better understand where dollars are being spent. The application includes three financial datasets: expenditures, revenues, and employee earnings. 

  • Revenue & Expenses – Is a visual representation of the Town’s revenue and expenditure history over time. Users can drill into each area to understand sources of revenue and the Town’s major expenditure categories.
  • Monthly Revenue & Expenses – Provides a monthly breakdown of the most recent fiscal year's revenue and expenditures. Users can drill into each area to understand sources of revenue and the Town’s major expenditure categories.
  • Employee Earnings – This dataset contains employee names, job details, and earnings information including base salary, overtime, and total compensation. 

Over time we will continue to improve the site and add new information, including transaction-level detail. Questions can be sent to opendata@yarmouth.ma.us
